PLANT BIOLOGY

Plant Biotic Interactions Group

Convenor: Katherine Denby (University of Warwick)

The Plant Biotic Interactions Group brings together researchers working on all aspects of plant interactions with other organisms. This includes parasitic, pathogenic and beneficial interactions with a wide range of organisms including viruses, bacteria, fungi, oomycetes, nematodes and insects. We are keen to involve researchers from different disciplines working on these areas at different scales, for example, molecular to population level,  and have strong links to the Plant Integrative Biology Group of the SEB. We are able to support research into plant biotic interactions through funding or part-funding focused meetings and sessions at the SEB Annual Meeting. We would particularly like to involve early career scientists and encourage proposals for exciting meeting topics.
